YORK, Maine (WHDH) — Authorities in Maine are searching for a Lowell man who allegedly forced his way into a home in York and fired multiple gunshots at a person inside during a violent robbery early Saturday morning.

Officers responding to a reported home invasion in the town around 1:30 a.m. found a man suffering from non-life-threatening gunshot wounds to his lower leg and foot, according to the York Police Department.
